Recycled Orchestra of Cateura
Presented by Cranbrook Violin Club, June 4 at 7:00 pm. Tickets $20. The youth in this orchestra live in one of the poorest slums in Latin America. Cateura is the trash dump for the nearby Paraguayan capital, Asuncion. Surrounded by drug-violence and destitution, the future for the youth of Cateura living amongst a sea of garbage was grim-until a local garbage picker got together with a nearby musician to create music instruments from trash. Violins from paint cans and forks, cellos from oil drums, guitars from packing crates, flutes from water pipes and spoons and drums from CT films. By crafting musical instruments out of trash, residents of this Paraguayan city created the world’s most unlikely youth orchestra. The Recycled Orchestra has given youth hope for a future different from that of their parents who pick through the pieces of trash that are their livelihood. Now performing in sold out concerts around the world and featured in the Landfillharmonic movie, this orchestra is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. Tickets are $20 general admission For more information about the Recycled Orchestra, please go to landfillharmonicmovie.com
